t’s been a long time since we’ve seen a line-up this classic, and issue #1 of the newly launching flagship X-MEN series delivers everything you could want and then some. Seriously: you can practically feel the same kind of raw comic book energy that surrounded past classic launches like Chris Claremont & Jim Lee’s iconic ’90s run, Grant Morrison’s ground-breaking NEW X-MEN, and one of our faves: Joss Whedon’s ASTONISHING X-MEN.

The the flagship X-Men series that started it all is back and better than ever!

Starting with a mysterious and tragic disappearance, the X-Men are drawn into what might be…their final adventure?!

Get ready, Third Eye Faithful: just like Bendis reinvented how we saw the AVENGERS in AVENGERS DISASSEMBLED, Rosenberg & Brisson will be doing the same in a story arc that could only be titled: X-MEN DISASSAMBLED, and it all begins in UNCANNY X-MEN #1 on 11/14/18!

In this special 80-page giant of a comic, we’re given one of the raddest X-MEN team rosters we’ve seen in a minute, with BISHOP, NIGHTCRAWLER, STORM, JEAN GREY, CANNONBALL, X-23, JUBILEE & PSYLOCKE all taking center-stage!

With a writing team that pairs up rising stars ED BRISSON (OLD MAN LOGAN) and MATTHEW ROSENBERG (PHOENIX RESURRECTION) — this book is going to be sharp as all get out, and we’re telling you right now: get ready for one of the best X-MEN runs you’ve seen in a minute!

Image debuts a killer new series with BITTER ROOT #1 this Wednesday featuring the incredible art of rising star SANFORD GREENE! Prohibition-era monster-hunting awesomeness! Picture BOARDWALK EMPIRE by way of HELLBOY!

We’ve always been huge fans of the art of Sanford Greene, and when we saw that he was teaming up with writers David Walker & Chuck Brown to deliver an all new IMAGE COMICS series with BITTER ROOT — we knew we had to shout it out big!

In the 1920s, the Harlem Renaissance is in full swing, and only the Sangerye Family can save New York-and the world-from the supernatural forces threatening to destroy humanity.

But the once-great family of monster hunters has been torn apart by tragedies and conflicting moral codes.

The Sangerye Family must heal the wounds of the past and move beyond their differences… or sit back and watch a force of unimaginable evil ravage the human race.

DAVID F. WALKER and SANFORD GREENE, the creative team of Power Man and Iron Fist, along with indie veteran CHUCK BROWN (Trench Coats, Cigarettes and Shotguns) bring you 24 action-packed pages of monsters, mayhem, and family dysfunction in a brand-new ongoing series.

 Get all 5 BITTER ROOT #1 covers for just $19.99 with our BITTER ROOT #1 Cover Bundle!

There’s some gorgeous covers to issue #1 of BITTER ROOT, including one by HELLBOY creator MIKE MIGNOLA, and another by living legend DENYS COWAN, so we just had to put something cool together to help you collect ’em all!

FANTASTIC FOUR #3 continues the best run of FF we’ve read since Hickman’s (deja vu to our Avengers write-up — notice a theme? 😉 )!!

OK, so I know we’re showing lots of love to Hickman’s Marvel work, and hey — you better believe it deserves it, because his runs on both AVENGERS and FANTASTIC FOUR are some of the most iconic, and compelling of the last couple decades; however, just like Jason Aaron’s AVENGERS is carrying the torch and delivering a run just as good as Hickman’s if not better, so is Dan Slott’s incredible new FANTASTIC FOUR run!

In issue #3, the Fantastic Four is more than a team. It’s a family. And when the fate of the very Multiverse is at stake, that means it’s time for the ENTIRE family to have a reunion.

Guest-starring: Spider-Man, Wolverine, the Hulk, Ghost Rider, Medusa, Crystal, Luke Cage and MORE.

Everything about the new FANTASTIC FOUR has us hooked, as it captures the kind of merry Marvel magic we love so much, and puts a new spin on it while remaining true to the core of what makes the Marvel Universe so rad.

Wanna get on board? We’ve got issues 1 & 2 in stock now to get you current!

ELECTRIC WARRIORS #1 explores DC’s Cosmic Dark Age (aka the KAMANDI timeline!) in a stunning new series that’s the freshest, most interesting DC cult hit since Tom King’s OMEGA MEN!

Meet writer STEVE ORLANDO at Third Eye on Saturday 12/15/18!

We’re so stoked about ELECTRIC WARRIORS, which takes a very obscure, and off-the-wall concept and puts one of the most interesting twists on it that we’ve seen since Tom King reinvented the way we saw the OMEGA MEN a few years ago!

A new tale of the future DC Universe, set in a previously unexplored timeline-the Cosmic Dark Age!

Years after the Great Disaster, the Earth has started to rebuild and rejoin the universal coalition. In order to prevent a galactic war, different worlds throughout the known cosmos have created a new system of competitive combat to give each participating planet their own voice in the intergalactic struggle.

Each world has one diplomatic gladiator, chosen to possess the Electric Seed and fight for their homeland as the Electric Warrior! Each fighter forsakes their personal life in the name of peace.

So what happens when Earth can’t choose a single combatant and sends two instead?

The bruiser War Cry represents the humans of Earth, while Deep Dweller, a shape-shifter from the Octopus Tribe, represents the animal kingdom.

Can they maintain one common goal, or will they tear Earth’s tenuous coexistence to shreds and destroy the rest of the universe with it? Oh, and War Cry also has a powerful relic from Earth’s past: Superman’s cape!

Meet ELECTRIC WARRIORS writer STEVE ORLANDO at Third Eye Annapolis on 12/15/18!

We’re hosting a huge signing for the upcoming new MARTIAN MANHUNTER #1 on 12/15/18, and guess what: you can bring your copy of ELECTRIC WARRIORS #1 in and get it signed then by STEVE ORLANDO as well!
